SAP HANA with Lucia Subatin and Kevin Nelson
00:30:23
<p><a href="https://twitter.com/syntxerror1">Jon Foust</a> is back with <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> this week as we talk about SAP HANA, a data and application platform. <a href="https://twitter.com/LuciaBlick">Lucia Subatin</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/knelsoncloud">Kevin Nelson</a> elaborate, explaining that SAP HANA is engineered for running SAP business applications. It is capable of handling large transactions very quickly and with great flexibility. With HANA, you don&rsquo;t move data around, so you can run transaction workloads, as well as analytics, etc. in the same platform.</p> <p>By teaming up with GCP, SAP HANA ensures that their enterprise users will have scalability and storage no matter how their businesses grow. GCP and SAP HANA developers have been working together to continue to make the products better.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="lucia-subatin">Lucia Subatin</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/LuciaBlick">Lucia</a>, Developer Advocate for SAP, is a proud geek. Her mission is to bring developers closer to SAP HANA and optimal enterprise solutions. Her contribution towards the community is based on enabling content and facilitating adoption by exploring and sharing more and better ways to capitalize the power of the platform.</p> <h5 id="kevin-nelson">Kevin Nelson</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/knelsoncloud">Kevin</a> is a Google Cloud Developer Advocate focused on enterprise strategic partners.

Cloud SQL with Amy Krishnamohan
00:26:28
<p>We&rsquo;re learning all about Cloud SQL this week with our guest, <a href="https://twitter.com/amykrishnamohan">Amy Krishnamohan</a>. Amy&rsquo;s main job is to teach customers about the products she represents. Today, she explains to <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/gabidavila">Gabi</a> that Cloud SQL manages services for open source databases, and she spends a little time elaborating on the other database management services Google has to offer.</p> <p>Cloud SQL is a relational data storage solution. Relational data storage is very structured, almost like a table or spreadsheet, making it easier to analyze the data. Cloud SQL is capable of scaling out and up, meaning it can scale for traffic patterns and for storage. In comparison, NoSQL databases are very unstructured. If you&rsquo;re not sure what kind of data is coming in, you can sort the data first and analyze it later. Each approach has its pros and cons and each is suitable for different types of projects.</p> <p>Recently, Cloud SQL released a feature making it easy to move from on-prem to the cloud. In the future, they will continue to streamline the process of moving between the two spaces.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="amy-krishnamohan">Amy Krishnamohan</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/amykrishnamohan">Amy</a> is Product Marketing Manager at Google Cloud responsible for Databases. She has diverse experience across product marketing, marketing strategy and product management from leading enterprise software companies such as MariaDB, Teradata, SAP, Accenture, Cisco and Intuit.

Go Cloud Functions with Stewart Reichling and Tyler Bui-Palsulich
00:32:15
<p>First-time host, <a href="https://twitter.com/the_thagomizer">Aja</a>, joins <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> today to talk Go Cloud Functions with two Google colleagues! <a href="https://twitter.com/stewblr">Stewart</a>, lead Product Manager on Google Cloud Functions, and <a href="https://www.twitter.com/tbpalsulich">Tyler</a>, Developer Programs Engineer at Google, start the show by explaining the purpose of Cloud Functions. It is a severless compute product that supports many programming languages, scales automatically, and only charges for what you use. It works best as event-driven computing, in other words, when something happens, you want something else to happen in response. Cloud Functions also works well between clouds or even Google Cloud services, acting as the glue between them.</p> <p>Go Cloud Functions works specifically for Go. Google makes a huge effort to make Cloud Functions easy to use for all developers, so that no matter what language you&rsquo;re familiar with, Cloud Functions works for you.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="stewart-reichling">Stewart Reichling</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/stewblr">Stewart Reichling</a> is the lead Product Manager on Google Cloud Functions.

Knative with Mark Chmarny and Ville Aikas
00:34:48
<p>We&rsquo;re back! This week, <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> welcomes <a href="https://twitter.com/gabidavila">Gabi</a> as his new co-host! Listen in as they discuss Knative with <a href="https://twitter.com/mchmarny">Mark Chmarny</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/AikasVille">Ville Aikas</a>.</p> <p>So what is Knative? Mark and Ville explain that Knative is basically a way to simplify Kubernetes for developers. This way, developers can focus on writing good code without worrying about all the aspects of Kubernetes, such as deploying and autoscaling. Knative helps with these functions automatically. Knative also supports many languages which allows developers to bring their own stack. The day-to-day of developing doesn&rsquo;t change, which is the beautiful thing about Knative!</p> <p>Knative is open source and easy to deploy. Developers can find installation guides online for any Kubernetes certified instance of service. A link to the installation guide for Knative on GKE is in our show notes.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="mark-chmarny">Mark Chmarny</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/mchmarny">Mark</a> is a Technical Program Manager for Serverless focusing on enabling customers to be successful with our serverless portfolio on GCP, and driving community awareness of our serverless products on GKE. Prior to that Mark lead the Partner Engineering team for Data, Analytics and ML at Google. Before Google, Mark was the Sr. Director of Datacenter Solutions Group at Intel.</p> <h5 id="ville-aikas">Ville Aikas</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/AikasVille">Ville</a> is a member of the Technical Oversight Committee for Knative, leads Knative Eventing, and (with Matt) conceived ducks for K8s. Previously, Ville worked on Helm, K8s Service Catalog and Kubernetes (before it was Kubernetes). Before the OSS stint Ville was a TL for Google Cloud Storage.</p> <h5 id="cool-things-of-the-week">Cool things of the week</h5> <ul> <li>Let the sunshine in: opening the market for more renewable energy in Asia <a href="https://blog.google/outreach-initiatives/sustainability/let-sunshine-opening-market-more-renewable-energy-asia/">blog</a></li> <li>Get Go-ing with Cloud Functions: Go 1.11 is now a supported language <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/application-development/cloud-functions-go-1-11-is-now-a-supported-language">blog</a></li> <li>Building Google&rsquo;s Game of the Year with Cloud Text-to-Speech and App Engine <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/topics/inside-google-cloud/building-googles-game-of-the-year-with-cloud-text-to-speech-and-app-engine">blog</a></li> <li>Welcome to the service mesh era: Introducing a new Istio blog post series <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/networking/welcome-to-the-service-mesh-era-introducing-a-new-istio-blog-post-series">blog</a></li> </ul> <h5 id="interview">Interview</h5> <ul> <li>Knative <a href="https://cloud.google.com/knative/">site</a></li> <li>Knative Blog <a href="https://blog.knative.dev">blog</a></li> <li>Knative on GitHub <a href="https://github.com/knative/">site</a></li> <li>Kubernetes <a href="https://kubernetes.io">site</a></li> <li>MiniKube <a href="https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/minikube/">site</a></li> <li>GKE <a href="https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/">site</a></li> <li>Pub/Sub <a href="https://cloud.google.com/pubsub/">site</a></li> <li>Cloudevents <a href="https://cloudevents.io">site</a></li> <li>Knative Install on Google Kubernetes Engine <a href="https://github.com/knative/docs/blob/master/install/Knative-with-GKE.md">site</a></li> <li>Knative Slack <a href="https://knative.slack.com">site</a></li> </ul> <h5 id="question-of-the-week">Question of the week</h5> <p><a href="https://cloud.google.com/sql/docs/mysql/high-availability">How long does it take for Cloud SQL to detect an outage and trigger High Availability failover?</a></p> <h5 id="where-can-you-find-us-next">Where can you find us next?</h5> <p>Gabi will be discussing the awesome new features of MySQL 8.0 at <a href="https://www.phpconference.co.uk/schedule/">PHP UK - London</a> and you will be also able to find her at <a href="https://cloud.withgoogle.com/next18/sf">Cloud NEXT</a></p> <p>Mark will be at <a href="https://gdconf.com">GDC</a> in March, <a href="https://cloud.withgoogle.com/next18/sf">Cloud NEXT</a>, and <a href="http://ecgconf.com">ECG</a> in April</p> <p>Our guests will be at <a href="https://cloud.withgoogle.com/next18/sf">Cloud NEXT</a> and <a href="https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/kubecon-cloudnativecon-europe-2019/">KubeCon Barcelona</a></p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/GcpPodcast/~4/c00W-pQsKfc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

VP of Engineering - Melody Meckfessel
00:33:28
<p><a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> talk with Google Cloud&rsquo;s VP of Engineering, <a href="https://twitter.com/mmeckf">Melody Meckfessel</a>, this week. In her time with Google Cloud, she and her team have worked to uncover what makes developers more productive. The main focus of their work is DevOps, defined by Melody as automation around the developer workflow and culture. In other words, Melody and her team are discovering new ways for developers to interact and how those interactions can encourage their productive peak.</p> <p>Melody and her team have used their internal research and expanded it to collaborate with Google Cloud partners and open source projects. The sharing of research and products has created even faster innovation as Google learns from these outside projects and vice versa.</p> <p>In the future, Melody sees amazing engagement with the community and even better experiences with containers on GCP. She is excited to see the Go community growing and evolving as more people use it and give feedback. Melody also speaks about diversity, encouraging everyone to be open-minded and try to build diverse teams to create products that are useful for all.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="melody-meckfessel">Melody Meckfessel</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/mmeckf">Melody Meckfessel</a> is a hands-on technology leader with more than 20 years experience building and maintaining large-scale distributed systems and solving problems at scale.

NeurIPS and AI Research with Anima Anandkumar
00:45:05
<p><a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> is solo this week talking with <a href="https://twitter.com/AnimaAnandkumar">Anima Anandkumar</a>, a Caltech Bren professor and director of ML research at NVIDIA. We touch on tensors, their use, and how they relate to TensorFlow. Anima also details the work she does with NVIDIA and how they are helping to advance machine learning through hardware and software. Our main discussion centers around AI and machine learning research conferences, specifically the Neural Information Processing Systems conference (commonly referred to as NIPS) and the reason they have rebranded.</p> <p>NIPS originally started as a small conference at Caltech. As deep learning became more and more popular, it grew exponentially. With the higher attendance and interest, the acronym became center stage. Sexual innuendos and harassing puns surrounded the conference, sparking a call for a name change. At first, conference organizers were reluctant to rebrand and they used recent survey results as a reason to keep NIPS.</p> <p>Anima discusses her personal experience protesting the acronym, opening up about the hate speech and threats of which she and others received. Despite the harassment, Anima and others continued to protest, petition, and share stories of mistreatment within the community which helped lead to the name/acronym change to NeurIPS. The rebranding hopes to reestablish an inclusive academic community and move the focus back to machine learning research and away from unprofessional attention.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="anima-anandkumar">Anima Anandkumar</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/AnimaAnandkumar">Animashree (Anima) Anandkumar</a> is a Bren professor at Caltech CMS department and a director of machine learning research at NVIDIA. Her research spans both theoretical and practical aspects of machine learning. In particular, she has spearheaded research in tensor-algebraic methods, large-scale learning, deep learning, probabilistic models, and non-convex optimization.</p> <p>Anima is the recipient of several awards such as the Alfred. P. Sloan Fellowship, NSF Career Award, Young investigator awards from the Air Force and Army research offices, Faculty fellowships from Microsoft, Google and Adobe, and several best paper awards. She is the youngest named professor at Caltech, the highest honor bestowed to an individual faculty. She is part of the World Economic Forum&rsquo;s Expert Network consisting of leading experts from academia, business, government, and the media. She has been featured in documentaries by PBS, KPCC, wired magazine, and in articles by MIT Technology review, Forbes, Yourstory, O’Reilly media, and so on.</p> <p>Anima received her B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras in 2004 and her PhD from Cornell University in 2009. She was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT from 2009 to 2010, visiting researcher at Microsoft Research New England in 2012 and 2014, assistant professor at U.C. Irvine between 2010 and 2016, associate professor at U.C.

Deep Learning Research in Africa with Yabebal Fantaye & Jessica Phalafala
00:49:17
<p>Today, <a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> brings you another great interview from her time at <a href="https://twitter.com/deepindaba">Deep Learning Indaba</a> in South Africa. She was joined by Yabebal Fantaye and Jessica Phalafala for an in-depth look at the deep learning research that&rsquo;s going on in the continent.</p> <p>At the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, the aim is to gather together minds from all over Africa and the world to not only learn but to use their distinct perspectives to contribute to research that furthers the sciences. Our guests are both part of this initiative, using their specialized skills to expand the abilities of the group and stretch the boundaries of machine learning, mathematics, and other sciences.</p> <p>Yabebal elaborates on the importance of AIMS and Deep Learning Indaba, noting that the more people can connect with each other, the more confidence they will gain. Jessica points out how this research in Africa can do more than just advance science. By focusing on African problems and solutions, machine learning research can help increase the GDP and economic standards of a continent thought to be &ldquo;behind&rdquo;.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="jessica-phalafala">Jessica Phalafala</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/rjphalafala">Jessica Phalafala</a> is a PhD Applied Mathematics student at Stellenbosch University and currently affiliated with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. In her mid-twenties, she finds herself with four qualifications all obtained with distinction, including a Master of Science in Pure Mathematics degree from the University of the Witwatersrand. Jessica is interested in using her functional analysis background together with a number of newly developed skills to contribute towards developing rigorous mathematical theory to support some existing deep learning methods and algorithms for her PhD research. Outside of research she takes great interest in fast-tracking the level of accessibility of higher education in South Africa as co-founder of the Sego Sa Lesedi Foundation, a platform created to inform underprivileged high school learners of career and funding opportunities in science as well as provide them with mentorship as they transition into undergraduate studies.</p> <h5 id="yabebal-fantaye">Yabebal Fantaye</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/yabebalf">Dr. Fantaye</a> is an AIMS-ARETE Research Chair based in South Africa. His research is in applying artificial intelligence and advanced statistical methods to cosmological data sets in order to understand the nature of the universe and to satellite images of the Earth in order to find alternative ways to monitor African development progress.

Wellio was developed as a way to not only educate users on the importance of proper nutrition for well-being but to give them their own personal nutritionist.</p> <p>The data scientists at Wellio started from scratch (pun intended) to create their own food-related database and then began training models so the data could be organized and personalized. Using a combination of human power and machine learning techniques, Wellio learns your preferences, allergies, diets, etc. and will make healthy decisions for you based on these key facts. It chooses recipes, populates a grocery list, and even has the ingredients delivered to your door in time for dinner!</p> <p></p> <h5 id="sivan-aldor-noiman">Sivan Aldor-Noiman</h5> <p>Sivan heads Data Science for Wellio, an early stage startup in the FoodTech space that is helping people eat better. In Wellio, her team delivers models that help inspire, empower and adapt to people’s eating needs, cooking abilities and health constraints. She began her career in the Israeli military serving as an instructor for an anti-tank missile unit (please don’t think Rambo, think more like a classroom teacher). Sivan then transitioned to school and received her undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering and a Master in Statistics from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. She moved to the U.S. to complete a Ph.D. degree in Statistics from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. In her previous job, Sivan ended up leading several Data Science teams and learned that she really liked leading technical people since she got to learn a lot from them. Ultimately, she missed the smaller company mentality, so she is back in the startup world. Sivan was once asked to define herself so here goes: &ldquo;I am an enthusiastic disagreeable giver and a constant empirical driven learner&rdquo;.</p> <h5 id="erik-andrejko">Erik Andrejko</h5> <p>Erik has spent his career making a positive impact on the world through mathematics. He is a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Wellio - an early stage startup applying AI to the intersection of food and human health. Previously, Erik lead the data science and research organization at The Climate Corporation, which applies data science to solve challenging problems in numerous domains including climatology, agronomic modeling and geospatial applications. When not analyzing interesting datasets, Erik can often be found riding up some incline on a bicycle or cooking.</p> <h5 id="cool-things-of-the-week">Cool things of the week</h5> <ul> <li>Summary of Google Cloud Next Tokyo <a href="https://cloud.withgoogle.com/next18/tokyo">site</a></li> <li>Deep Learning Indaba GCP Credit Awards <a href="https://twitter.com/DeepIndaba/status/1040561702910263297">site</a></li> <li>Data Studio and Dataprep are now generally available <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/data-analytics/unlock-insights-with-ease-data-studio-and-cloud-dataprep-are-now-generally-available">blog</a> <ul> <li>DS: BI analyze <a href="https://datastudio.google.com/data">more than 500 other data sources</a> via more than 100 partner-built connectors and used by over a million people globally</li> <li>DP: new look, team collab and more analytics features <a href="https://www.trifacta.com/blog/announcing-general-availability-google-cloud-dataprep-trifacta/">blog</a></li> </ul></li> <li>Announcing general availability of Cloud Memorystore for Redis <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/databases/announcing-general-availability-of-cloud-memorystore-for-redis">blog</a></li> <li>Coursera Advanced Machine Learning with TensorFlow with GCP <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/topics/training-certifications/now-on-coursera-advanced-machine-learning-with-tensorflow-on-google-cloud-platform">blog</a> <ul> <li><a href="https://cloudonair.withgoogle.com/events/americas">Webinar</a> on October 9th at 9AM PST to learn more</li> </ul></li> <li>Simplifying ML predictions with Google Cloud Functions <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/ai-machine-learning/simplifying-ml-predictions-with-google-cloud-functions">blog</a></li> <li>50 Best Cloud Security Podcasts <a href="https://securityboulevard.com/2018/09/50-best-cloud-security-podcasts/">site</a> <ul> <li>GCP Podcast Episode #100: Vint Cerf: past, present, and future of the internet <a href="https://www.gcppodcast.com/post/episode-100-vint-cerf/">podcast</a></li> </ul></li> </ul> <h5 id="interview">Interview</h5> <ul> <li>Wellio <a href="www.getwellio.com">site</a></li> <li>GKE <a href="https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud Storage <a href="https://cloud.google.com/storage/">site</a></li> <li>Pub/Sub <a href="https://cloud.google.com/pubsub/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud Composer <a href="https://cloud.google.com/composer/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud ML Engine <a href="https://cloud.google.com/ml-engine/">site</a></li> <li>Stackdriver <a href="https://cloud.google.com/stackdriver/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud Functions <a href="https://cloud.google.com/functions/">site</a></li> <li>TensorFlow <a href="https://www.tensorflow.org">site</a></li> <li>Keras <a href="https://keras.io">site</a></li> <li>Scikit Learn <a href="http://scikit-learn.org/stable/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud TPU <a href="https://cloud.google.com/tpu/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud AutoML <a href="https://cloud.google.com/automl/">site</a></li> <li>Cloud Vision <a href="https://cloud.google.com/vision/">site</a></li> <li>DevOps201 for Application Developers <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzE-zNX67w0&amp;list=PLBgogxgQVM9v0xG0QTFQ5PTbNrj8uGSS-&amp;index=221&amp;t=0s">video</a></li> <li>Cloud Firestore <a href="https://firebase.google.com/docs/firestore/">site</a></li> <li>Day 3 Keynote: Made Here Together <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQPOPV_VH5w&amp;index=337&amp;t=0s&amp;list=PLBgogxgQVM9v0xG0QTFQ5PTbNrj8uGSS-">video</a></li> <li>Spinnaker <a href="https://www.spinnaker.io">site</a></li> <li>Contact Wellio <a href="mailto: sivan@getwellio.com">email</a></li> </ul> <h5 id="questions-of-the-week">Questions of the week</h5> <p>Is Inbox going away?</p> <ul> <li>Inbox is signing off: find your favorite features in the new Gmail <a href="https://www.blog.google/products/gmail/inbox-signing-find-your-favorite-features-new-gmail/">blog</a></li> <li>5 ways the new Gmail can help you get more done <a href="https://www.blog.google/products/gmail/5-ways-new-gmail-can-help-you-get-more-done/">blog</a></li> </ul> <h5 id="where-can-you-find-us-next">Where can you find us next?</h5> <p>We&rsquo;ll both be at <a href="https://www.thestrangeloop.com">Strangeloop</a>.</p> <p>Mark will probably be at <a href="https://unite.unity.com/2018/los-angeles">Unite L.A.</a> in October.</p> <p>Melanie speaking at <a href="https://monktoberfest.com/">Monktoberfest</a> Oct 4th in Portland, Maine.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/GcpPodcast/~4/CUkutJjVLJQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Mercari with Taichi Nakashima and Tonghui (Terry) Li
00:23:27
<p>This week we learn about how Mercari is handling migrating from an on-prem monolithic infrastructure to cloud microservices architecture with GKE. <a href="https://twitter.com/ummterry">Terry</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/deeeet">Taichi</a> share with <a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> what drove the decision for the change, the challenges and what the team has learned from the transition. The real value for this change has been about making the platform more scalable as they grow to meet the needs of their millions of daily active users. It&rsquo;s another great interview we captured out of Google NEXT.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="taichi-nakashima">Taichi Nakashima</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/deeeet">Taichi</a> is a tech lead for the microservices platform at Mercari. Prior to Mercari, he was a backend engineer at Rakuten, building internal Platform as a Service. Mercari chose microservice architecture as their next development platform, and built two teams to proceed with the migration. One is the microservice platform team that is building a platform that can deploy any microservices, and the other is the microservice development team that are focusing on migrating the current monolithic API to microservices. Mercari use GKE as a platform and GCP as the main infrastructure for microservices.</p> <h5 id="tonghui-terry-li">Tonghui (Terry) Li</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/ummterry">Tonghui</a> joined Mercari in April 2018 and is responsible for migrating the monolithic backend API to a microservice architecture.

<p><a href="https://twitter.com/grittygrease">Nick Sullivan</a>, and <a href="https://twitter.com/agl_">Adam Langley</a> join <a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> to provide a pragmatic view on post-quantum cryptography and what it means to research security for the potential of quantum computing. Post-quantum cryptography is about developing algorithms that are resistant to quantum computers in conjunction with &ldquo;classical&rdquo; computers. It&rsquo;s about looking at the full picture of potential threats and planning on how to address them using a diversity of types of mathematics in the research. Adam and Nick help clarify the different terminology and techniques that are applied in the research and give a practical understanding of what to expect from a security perspective.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="nick-sullivan">Nick Sullivan</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/grittygrease">Nick Sullivan</a> runs the cryptography team at <a href="https://www.cloudflare.com">Cloudflare</a>, an internet security and performance company.</p> <h5 id="adam-langley">Adam Langley</h5> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/agl_">Adam Langley</a> is a Principal Software Engineer at Google, responsible for a variety of cryptography-related efforts.</p> <h5 id="cool-things-of-the-week">Cool things of the week</h5> <ul> <li>Google IO <a href="https://events.google.com/io/">site</a> &amp;

Machine Learning Bias and Fairness with Timnit Gebru and Margaret Mitchell
00:42:45
<p>This week, we dive into machine learning bias and fairness from a social and technical perspective with machine learning research scientists <a href="https://twitter.com/timnitgebru">Timnit Gebru</a> from Microsoft and <a href="https://twitter.com/mmitchell_ai">Margaret Mitchell</a> (aka Meg, aka M.) from Google.</p> <p>They share with <a href="https://twitter.com/nyghtowl">Melanie</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> about ongoing efforts and resources to address bias and fairness including diversifying datasets, applying algorithmic techniques and expanding research team expertise and perspectives. There is not a simple solution to the challenge, and they give insights on what work in the broader community is in progress and where it is going.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="timnit-gebru">Timnit Gebru</h5> <p><a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/people/tigebru/">Timnit Gebru</a> works in the Fairness Accountability Transparency and Ethics (FATE) group at the New York Lab. Prior to joining Microsoft Research, she was a PhD student in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, studying computer vision under Fei-Fei Li. Her main research interest is in data mining large-scale, publicly available images to gain sociological insight, and working on computer vision problems that arise as a result, including fine-grained image recognition, scalable annotation of images, and domain adaptation. The Economist and others have recently covered part of this work. She is currently studying how to take dataset bias into account while designing machine learning algorithms, and the ethical considerations underlying any data mining project. As a cofounder of the group Black in AI, she works to both increase diversity in the field and reduce the impact of racial bias in the data.</p> <h5 id="margaret-mitchell">Margaret Mitchell</h5> <p><a href="http://www.m-mitchell.com/">M. Mitchell</a> is a Senior Research Scientist in Google’s Research &amp; Machine Intelligence group, working on artificial intelligence. Her research involves vision-language and grounded language generation, focusing on how to evolve artificial intelligence toward positive goals. Margaret’s work combines machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, social media, and insights from cognitive science. Before Google, Margaret was a founding member of Microsoft Research’s “Cognition” group, focused on advancing artificial intelligence, and a researcher in Microsoft Research’s Natural Language Processing group.</p> <h5 id="cool-things-of-the-week">Cool things of the week</h5> <ul> <li>GPS/Cellular Asset Tracking using Google Cloud IoT Core, Firestore and MongooseOS <a href="https://medium.com/google-cloud/gps-cellular-asset-tracking-using-google-cloud-iot-core-firestore-and-mongooseos-4dd74921f582">blog</a></li> <li>GPUs in Kubernetes Engine now available in beta <a href="https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2018/02/accelerate-highly-parallelized-compute-tasks-with-GPUs-in-Kubernetes-Engine.html">blog</a></li> <li>Announcing Spring Cloud GCP - integrating your favorite Java framework with Google Cloud <a href="https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2018/02/announcing-Spring-Cloud-GCP-integrating-your-favorite-Java-framework-with-Google-Cloud.html">blog</a><br /></li> </ul> <h5 id="interview">Interview</h5> <ul> <li>PAIR | People+AI Research Initiative <a href="https://ai.google/pair">site</a></li> <li>FATE | Fairness, Accountability, Transparency and Ethics in AI <a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/group/fate/">site</a></li> <li>Fat* Conference <a href="https://fatconference.org/">site</a> &amp; <a href="https://fatconference.org/links.html">resources</a></li> <li>Joy Buolamwini <a href="https://www.media.mit.edu/people/joyab/overview/">site</a></li> <li>Algorithmic Justice Leaguge <a href="https://www.ajlunited.org/">site</a></li> <li>ProPublica Machine Bias <a href="https://www.propublica.org/article/machine-bias-risk-assessments-in-criminal-sentencing">article</a></li> <li>AI Ethics &amp; Society Conference <a href="http://www.aies-conference.com/">site</a></li> <li>Ethics in NLP Conference <a href="http://www.ethicsinnlp.org/">site</a></li> <li>FACETS <a href="https://pair-code.github.io/facets/">site</a></li> <li>TensorFlow Lattice <a href="https://github.com/tensorflow/lattice">repo</a></li> </ul> <p>Sample papers on bias and fairness:</p> <ul> <li>Gender Shades: Intersectional Accuracy Disparities in Commercial Gender Classification <a href="http://proceedings.mlr.press/v81/buolamwini18a.html">paper</a></li> <li>Facial Recognition is Accurate, if You&rsquo;re a White Guy <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/09/technology/facial-recognition-race-artificial-intelligence.html">article</a></li> <li>Mitigating Unwanted Biases with Adversarial Learning <a href="https://arxiv.org/pdf/1801.07593.pdf">paper</a></li> <li>Improving Smiling Detection with Race and Gender Diversity <a href="https://arxiv.org/pdf/1712.00193.pdf">paper</a></li> <li>Fairness Through Awareness <a href="https://arxiv.org/pdf/1104.3913.pdf">paper</a></li> <li>Avoiding Discrimination through Casual Reasoning <a href="https://arxiv.org/pdf/1706.02744.pdf">paper</a></li> <li>Man is to Computer Programmer as Woman is to Homemaker?

Basecamp Networks with Craig Ganssle
00:32:41
<p><a href="http://basecampnetworks.com/">Basecamp Networks</a> uses Machine Learning to diagnose easily what kind of sickness or parasite a crop might be suffering. They&rsquo;re powered by Google Cloud Platform, and their CEO, <a href="https://twitter.com/craiganssle">Craig Ganssle</a>, is here to tell <a href="https://twitter.com/Neurotic">Mark</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/francesc">Francesc</a> all about it.</p> <p></p> <h5 id="about-craig-ganssle">About Craig Ganssle</h5> <p>Craig Ganssle is the Founder and CEO of Basecamp Networks. With over 20 years in the technology industry, Craig has extensive experience developing and deploying wireless networks and designing predictive learning solutions for complex problem solving.</p> <p>Craig started Basecamp Networks in 2007 providing global wireless network infrastructures as well as creative solutions for difficult and time-consuming IT issues. As a partner with Google since 2008, Craig was one of the original Glass Explorers, Google’s original beta test group. In early 2013, Craig advanced to an elite small team for this innovative technology. Since then, under his leadership and Basecamp’s agricultural focus, Craig’s vision for Glass led his team to develop intelliSCOUT®, the world&rsquo;s first wearable application offering farmers a truly hands-free solution, enabling agricultural problem-solving by collecting actionable insights from the field in a fraction of the time. intelliSCOUT® technology has been demonstrated, in conjunction with the Basecamp Networks’ offering, to dignitaries throughout the world, including France, where Craig was personally requested to present this technology to President Francois Hollande. In October 2016 Craig and Basecamp won the Atlanta Telecom Partnership (ATP) Technology Service Provider of The Year Award (in addition to his achievements in agricultural technological advancements).</p> <p>Prior to founding Basecamp Networks, Craig was recruited by Verizon Wireless in 2001 where he oversaw U.S. Southeast Operations in the network engineering division and was later tasked with deploying LTE in the Southeast United States. Craig’s advanced innovative solutions are currently in use across Verizon’s entire company footprint today. During this time Craig also received a bachelor&rsquo;s degree from Muhlenberg College in Business Administration, and a Computer Science degree from AIU.</p> <p>In addition to his contributions in the public sector, Craig served honorably in the United States Marine Corps as an intelligence communications operator with the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) 2nd Force Recon Battalion. He was later assigned as a detached &ldquo;special operator&rdquo; under the Department of the Navy, to Naval Special Warfare Unit S.E.A.L. Teams as a &ldquo;joint operator&rdquo; before being honorably discharged in 2001 for medical reasons. During his six years of service, Craig was highly decorated with various commendations and medals for his service and valor.</p> <p>Craig is very active in mission work with his church that includes providing internet services in rural and remote locations globally. Basecamp Networks is headquartered in Alpharetta, GA where Craig resides with his wife and children.</p> <h5 id="cool-things-of-the-week">Cool things of the week</h5> <ul> <li>Google Cloud Platform launches Northern Virginia region <a href="https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2017/05/Google-Cloud-Platform-launches-Northern-Virginia-region.html">announcement</a>.</li> <li>Compute Engine machine types with up to 64 vCPUs now ready for your production workloads <a href="https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2017/05/Compute-Engine-machine-types-with-up-to-64-vCPUs-now-ready-for-your-production-workloads.html">announcement</a>. <ul> <li>Listen to <a href="https://gcppodcast.com/post/episode-41-descartes-labs-with-tim-kelton/">Episode #41 Descartes Labs with Tim Kelton</a>.</li> </ul></li> <li>Terraforming the Google Cloud <a href="http://alexander.holbreich.org/terraform-google-cloud/">alexander.holbreich.org</a>.</li> </ul> <h5 id="interview">Interview</h5> <ul> <li><a href="http://basecampnetworks.com/">Basecamp Networks</a></li> <li>OpenCV: Open Computer Vision <a href="http://opencv.org/">opencv.org</a></li> <li>Tensorflow: An open-source software library for Machine Intelligence <a href="https://www.tensorflow.org/">tensorflow.org</a></li> <li>Lagom: The Opinionated Microservices Framework for moving away from the Monolith <a href="https://www.lagomframework.com/">lagomframework.com</a></li> <li>intelliSCOUT: a product of Basecamp Networks <a href="http://www.intelliscout.io/">intelliscout.io</a></li> </ul> <div style="text-align: center"> <a href="https://cloud.google.com/container-engine/"><img src="../images/post/basecampnetworks.png" style="margin: auto;" width="50%"></a> </div> <h5 id="question-of-the-week">Question of the week</h5> <p>How can I learn machine learning for free?</p> <p>Follow this courses:</p> <ul> <li>Machine Learning by Stanford University <a href="https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning">coursera</a></li> <li>Deep Learning by Google <a href="https://www.udacity.com/course/deep-learning--ud730">Udacity</a></li> <li>CS 20SI: Tensorflow for Deep Learning Research <a href="http://web.stanford.edu/class/cs20si/syllabus.html">Stanford</a></li> </ul> <p>And more:</p> <ul> <li>Google Machine Learning Engine and episode <a href="https://gcppodcast.com/post/episode-71-cloud-ml-with-yufeng-guo/">gcppodcast #71</a></li> <li>Tensorflow with Eli Bixby <a href="https://gcppodcast.com/post/episode-31-tensorflow-with-eli-bixby/">gcppodcast #31</a></li> <li>Announcing general availability of GPUs for Cloud Machine Learning Engine <a href="https://cloud.google.com/blog/big-data/2017/05/announcing-general-availability-of-gpus-for-cloud-machine-learning-engine">announcement</a></li> </ul> <h5 id="where-can-you-find-us-next">Where can you find us next?</h5> <p>Francesc presented at Gopherfest and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giUatBmmb_Y">the video</a> is already out there!
